Baby Bunnies Give This Wedding Cuteness Overload

If you’re an animal lover and you have the chance to have baby bunnies at your wedding — yes, baby bunnies — you do it. But they aren’t the only part of this wedding from Mango Muse Events that’s giving us the warm and fuzzies. From the Bride’s lovely black lace overlay dress and her ‘maids in Weddington Way to the whimsical decor and Giggle and Riot photo booth, this day is full of good vibes. See it all from Kate Webber Photography in The Vault!

From Mango Muse EventsNicole and David both work in finance and are traders. They met one night at a trader party and as they say, the rest is history. Nicole was born in China, but has lived all over the place. David was born in Seattle, but also moved around a lot. They both settled down in Chicago and now call it home. Later they found out that their fathers were both from the same town in China, what are the odds?

Having friends and family located all over the country and internationally and being avid travelers, Nicole and David decided a destination wedding would not only be fun, but made total sense. They could bring everyone together in a place they loved and celebrate their love.

The first time they visited Napa valley, they fell in love with the sheer natural beauty along with two of the things they love, great food and champagne. So, having a wine country wedding was a great fit.

Style wise they veer towards the contemporary, but also love vintage accents and artistic touches. They didn’t want to go the standard rustic wine country look and feel, but something that melded their tastes with the beauty of the environment. We created a classy, luxe and lush wedding with vintage, modern and artistic touches like the lush florals in rich jewel tones, slight Chinese influenced elements, natural, but refined elements like the laser cut bird place cards, watercolor menus, petal fan program, crystal chandeliers, comfortably elegant lounges and a cake designed after the bride’s beautiful wedding dress.

As creative and thoughtful people, it was also really important that the wedding be personal, warm and comfortable. So, we so we made sure that came through in their wedding. Their ceremony included sharing the story they wrote and how they feel about their relationship, personal vows, special readings and the cutest ring bearer bunny and bunny release.

As big animal lovers, they have a bunny (and a dog) back in Chicago and while they couldn’t bring her, we brought in some bunnies to add a fun personal touch and surprise. During cocktail hour guests got to leave special wishes for the couple, drank special cocktails named after the characters in their story, and pet some baby bunnies as well.

The evening brought a delicious family style meal, lots of champagne, heartfelt toasts, a first dance to live music, sweet parent’s dance, and lots of lively dancing with video projection.

There were so many things to love about this wedding from the beautiful setting, gorgeous décor, and cute bunnies to the loving couple. But, my favorite parts of the day were the personal and warm moments like a heartfelt hug with their wedding party, dancing in the slomobooth, and getting butterflies over their first dance. Nicole and David do everything together in life from taking voice and dance lessons to playing video games. And their wedding was no different. They did everything together and it showed in the love they shared on this special day.

From Brumley and WellsJeremy & Allie’s love story was pure romance from the beginning, with a chance meeting in Chicago, followed by long distance communication, and trips back and forth across the country to see each other. Eventually, Jeremy moved to San Francisco to be with Allie and to complete his residency. It only made sense that they’d be married here, minutes from the Golden Gate bridge and surrounded by the foliage of The Presidio, which is quintessential to the Bay Area landscape.

From Christine Choi PhotographyThis simple cozy wedding was perfect for these two. The venue was at a friend’s beautiful backyard, with only close family members were present to celebrate with them. The bride wore a strapless, white lace midi dress with a sweetheart neckline and a pair of cute little white heeled sandals that she found at a mall near her home. They were just enough to make her a blushing bride but not over the top for her special day. Her hair was swept over one side with gorgeous curls that made her look elegant and stylish. He wore a suit that fit him like a pair of gloves with deep dark brown shoes. His blue and white strip tie went well with his “dandy” look. This intimate wedding was the perfect start to their celebration that continued to their honeymoon to Bora Bora!
